Christoph Von Der Malsburg: The Neural Code Issue
Talk by Christoph von der Malsburg of the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies and Platonite AG. Given to the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at UC Berkeley.
Let's go for the real thing: Every waking second, our mind represents for us the situation we are immersed in. How do the physical states of our brain create this mental imagery? I call this the Neural Code Issue. The pathway to solving it is currently blocked by an answer that isn't even wrong. Come to my talk if you want to get the correct one. I see it as the doorway to the realization of human-level electronic intelligence.
